Publisher's Summary

"Milton" is an epic poem by William Blake, written and illustrated between 1804 and 1810.

Its hero is John Milton, who returns from Heaven and unites with Blake to explore the relationship between living writers and their predecessors, and to undergo a mystical journey to correct his own spiritual errors.

Rip Off

This audiobook is a ripoff. It was recorded for LibriVox as a totally free, public domain audiobook. It is available free from both LibriVox and the Internet Archive and can also be viewed free on YouTube. Look carefully at audiobooks made available from "SAGA Egmont" -- a lot of them are re-treads from LibriVox and are available free from the sources given above. I'd recommend that Audible think twice about charging for stuff like this.

A truly terrible production

The first, English, narrator has a droning, almost toneless and banal voice. But at least his pronunciations are correct, and though he is far from inspiring, it’s possible to listen to him. Then, inexplicably, the narrator changes. The second voice suddenly makes the former sound like one of the great orators by comparison. He is absolutely awful. His pronunciation of ‘annihilation’ is painful (and in this section Blake uses it again and again), and it is a serious struggle to listen to the last quarter of this poem as a result. I really do not think this production could be much worse (unless the second narrator read the entire poem). Not impressed.

Droning voice makes it boring

The narrator hardly moderates his voice so it just drones on and on. Also there are mispronunciations, e.g. conshumation instead of consummation, conshumed instead of consumed..
